Chances of nail injury and infection are extremely high during manicure procedures. Excessive pressure on the cuticles while clipping them can hurt your skin. And that’s why it’s essential that you visit a salon that has experienced manicurists. Check if they use sterile equipment. And check the levels of cleanliness they follow inside the salon.
Make sure the salon you are visiting has simple foot baths. Foot baths that come with motors are a bit tough to clean and thus, you risk infection.
You can even get your nail equipment and carry them while you visit the salons. If you can’t carry them along, make sure the manicurist and the technicians clean the equipment and sterilize them before you use them.
Make sure the manicurist washes and sterilizes his/her hands before performing manicure on your hands.
Nail trends keep on changing, and so do manicure styles. You can always choose one that suits your personal preferences, and then customize it accordingly. There is much scope for experimenting with colors and embellishments (such as artificial nails and stones). Talk to your manicurist first, and don’t be shy to experiment.
I can sense you already have started thinking about the manicure you want to try during your next salon visit. Do share your experience with me!
